This course provides a structured experience for biomedical students to prepare to transition into their next training position or job. The course is designed to guide students in identifying their next career step, and then strategically planning and preparing for a job search inside or outside of academia. Students will also develop their job materials (CV/resume and cover letters) and the course will culminate in using these materials in a mock interview with a life science professional. This course is open to all GSBS students, but preference is given to post-candidacy PhD students and MS students in their final year of study.
